The Black Swan

While I was Disney’s favorite mermaid for a party before Halloween, I went out on the 31st as The Black Swan. I think I did rather well with the costume, teamed up next to my friend Tree as a black cat (mee-owww).

For my face I used Make Up Forever white eyeshadow to give me whitened look, with YSL Black eyeshadow around my eyes and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner as well. Covergirl Lipstick Blast Duo on the lips!

What do you think of this costume?! Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!

Providence Pride

This Saturday my little sister took me to my first Gay Pride Festival ever, and I must say it was quite fun. When scrounging for something to wear I tweeted something along the lines of “what says ‘I like to drink and have fun and support the LGBT community, but I won’t go down on you’?” and I think I succeeded pretty well! We lounged under some shade in between enjoying the booths, and snacked on delicious organic macaroni and cheese from the Rocket food truck! For dinner? Deep fried Twinkie’s, Oreo’s, and Reese’s. Holy heart attack.

Out of Place, Out of Mind

Today I was excited to do a “fashion” thing in Massachusetts! I was set to go to a fashion show of area designers presenting their version of a “little black dress”. This was to be held in Berlin, MA, which for you out-of-staters who may not know, is a small rural town quite far from the hub bub of the Boston capital. It was exactly what you’d expect; and drastically different from what my still-New-York mind expected.

Middle aged women gathered in their best chunky two inch heels from the 90’s in the old “Town Hall” in various versions of LBD’s (down to their knees). Their hair; either too short to style or in the sleekest of French Twists.

Enter: Sahra. In a mesh, see through leotard with a tucked in maxi skirt and 4″ platform pumps. God, I did not belong.

Okay, Okay. There was a good part. The woman who’s dress I went to see was actually spectacular. It was on-trend with a sheer top, low cut sheer back, and fringed trim. Something I would definitely wear and could actually see people in the real world of cities wearing out to a party (to Le Bain maybe?). Sonia, and her line Passion, are exceptional. And the goodie bags were adorable and smelt so great! Sonia and Passion are exceptionally professional and I can’t wait to see her expand and hopefully come to NYC!

Anyway, I’m clearly out of place here. I hung out with my future NYC roommate last night and all we did was reminisce about The City and plan our future apartment. August can’t come soon enough for the both of us.

Rainbow Fish Monday

This cardigan is quickly becoming my favorite, I don’t care how many people seem to hate on it. Blue/Teal/Green big sequins? Yes Please.

I wore this outfit to the doctors, classy, I know. Where I found out JUST how sick I’ve actually been. With the prognosis, my mom felt bad and took me out for a nice lunch of Spike’s Junkyard Dogs followed by some mall adventures.

After the mall we continued with the retail therapy at my favorite thrift store, Saver’s! I found a gorgeous semi sheer rose dress for $3.99 and this lilac faux ostrich jacket for, wait for it… $2.99!!! talk about aSTEAL! When I stopped at Target for my antibiotics, I picked up Esse’s “She’s Picture Perfect” to match.

The best part has to be that the cashier thought I looked so good in the dress, he stamped our coupon card an extra bunch of times…We only spent $10, you get a stamp for every $5….. you do the math!

I’m off to enjoy some antibiotics and penne alfredo and kick this cold before my trip next week! Sorry there’s no recipe this week, no one will eat anything I cook due to my sickness :/

ps! Don’t forget to enter my giveaway of my favorite beauty products here!  You could win a Dior nail polish, Dior mascara, Kat Von D eyeliner, and Garnier moisturizer!

Ringing in 2012

Hello, and Happy New Year you gorgeous fashionista’s and followers!

I’m in an exceptionally good mood, starting 2012 on a good note. For my NYE I spent it in Atlantic City, seeing my favorite band ever, Brand New, who I had never seen before, play a three set show. I know, music on a fashion blog? But it was THAT big a deal for me.

So, due to it just being a rock show, you won’t see any heels in this post. I wore some battered up Toms Shoes I had inherited from my previous roommate, with an American Apparel skirt, Target tights (god, I hate the hearts; I’d thought I’d grabbed solid black!), a new top from Urban Outfitters, and a Forever 21 jacket. It seems very clashy to me, but what do you all think?

As the clock counted down a chorus of a few hundred fans shouted a repetitious “They’re just jealous ‘cuz we’re young and in love” as twin screens behind the band showed the ball drop, dropping confetti and balloons on top of us.

It was magical, blissful, and pure perfection.

Hope you’re new year was all that you hoped for and more, and here’s to hoping 2012 is 12983719871293 times better than 2011!
